Failure to pay payroll taxes can be an expensive mistake

Businesses of all sizes are required to comply with state and federal tax regulations in order to avoid audits and penalties. However, even if you are the owner of a business, it doesn't mean you are expected to run it on your own without any help.

Report: 10 things to avoid if you want to avoid an audit

The U.S. tax code is often referred to as the most complex tax code in the world. Because of this, people can make mistakes, overlook details and misinterpret their obligations quite easily. However, this doesn't mean that the IRS will look the other way if there are errors or problems with your tax return.

How does the IRS choose who to audit?

Each year during tax season, we receive questions from many Georgia taxpayers about IRS audits. In particular, individuals and small business owners want to know what they can do to minimize their risk of being audited. While there is no way to completely avoid an audit, being accurate when completing your tax filings should help. Accuracy will also work in your favor if the IRS selects your tax return to audit.

What are the penalties if I can't pay my taxes?

By now, individuals across Atlanta should have started receiving tax documents in the mail. While you still have several weeks until the deadline to file your taxes, there are many people who are starting to think about the taxes they expect to get back or those they are going to be expected to pay.

What if an employee loses their W-2?

Many taxpayers in Georgia look forward to receiving their annual W-2 form from their employer. The W-2 form -- officially, the Internal Revenue Service's Wage and Tax Statement -- lists an employee's wages for the year as well as some other key figures, including federal income tax withholding. In order to file taxes with the IRS - and, in many cases, receive their tax refunds -- workers need the information from their W-2 from their employers.

Audits can now come 6 years after being filed

No individual or business owner wants to be audited by the Internal Revenue Service. Tax returns are complicated enough to file, and the idea that the IRS can come back and launch a thorough investigation into those documents and financial accounts can lead to considerable fear, intimidation and anxiety.
